On this special Bay Area Council Quarterly Update edition of Bay Area Ventures we speak with Jim Wunderman, CEO of The Bay Area Council about the first quarter 2017 economic state if the San Francisco Bay Area.

The Bay Area economy continues to move along at a blistering pace in 2017 but the flip side of economic growth is the tremendous pressure it places on transportation, housing and prices.

Jim and his organization have been working for years on policies and bills to address the key issues affecting the Bay Area and the first quarter saw several new laws passed by the California State Senate as well as a huge gas tax and fee package ushered in by Governor Jerry Brown. In this episode Jim talks about those initiatives and how they will impact the Bay Area. He also talks about when to expect these initiatives to make an impact and what he’ll be working on next.

Finally, the Bay Area Council just completed their 2017 poll and Jim discusses what questions were asked and the results of his analysis. Find out which key issues are on the top of minds of Bay Area residents and which one, in particular, is considered a crisis.

The Bay Area Council is a public policy organization focused on making the San Francisco Bay Area and the Silicon Valley the most globally competitive and economically productive region in the world. The Council’s membership is comprised of CEOs from hundreds of the top businesses in the Bay Area and Jim has been its CEO since 2004.
